Ray and Carla, who are having a steamy affair, plot to steal money from Carla's husband, Greg. But what begins as a simple plan quickly spirals out of control when the mob gets involved and Ray and Carla are helpless to stop the violent and bloody sequence of events."--Container.

I didn't like this movie very much. The movie picks up during the final 5-10 minutes, but most of this film was kind of a snoozer to me.

A hard hitting Australian film.
How far will one man go to cover up his love affair.

Not so bad Australian thriller.

If you liked the old film noirs like “Double Indemnity,” “The Postman Always Ring Twice, or the newer one, “Body Heat,” you might like this one. For some, crime pays. Yet, for some, crime does not pay.

This movie is very disturbing. If you find certain acts of violence disturbing, don't watch this movie.

An Aussie story with more twists and turns than Blood Simple. Very worth watching for us who yearn for good mysteries like Blood Simple.

Ray is in a loveless marriage and hopes to escape the monotony when he begins a torrid affair with next-door neighbor Carla. Although she is married to a low-level mobster, she also seeks a little excitement. Ray's moral values are tested to the limit when Carla presents him with a bag of cash from one of her husband's latest crimes. What was to be an opportunity to take the money and run, soon becomes a matter of arson, murder, and blackmail.
David Roberts, Claire van der Boom, Joel Edgerton, Anthony Hayes, Peter Phelps and Bill Hunter. .
